I installed SmartSVN.  Then, it asked me for my license file.  I browsed to my license file and provided it.  Then, I selected the option "I want assistance with setting up the respository".  Then, attached window popped up asking for path of the 'svnadmin' and 'svnserve' executables which are part of the SVN installation.
What do I enter in these two fields ?

OT: My suggestion is to use Git instead of SVN. Please, do not consider it trolling. I did use also CVS and SVN. Once you learn the basics of Git (which is fairly easy when using the packaged "git gui" and gitk), you will never want to go back. The installation and initialization of Git is easier (in my opinion) than of the CVS and SVN.

I don't have choice.  My company uses SVN.

I understand. Because of that I have marked as Off Topic.

Anyway, being you, I would try the git svn bridge. English is not my mother language, and I would not express it better than the following paragraphs from the ProGit book (kind of Bible of Git -- http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-and-Other-Systems-Git-and-Subversion):

Git and Subversion

Currently, the majority of open source development projects and a large number of corporate projects use Subversion to manage their source code. It’s the most popular open source VCS and has been around for nearly a decade. It’s also very similar in many ways to CVS, which was the big boy of the source-control world before that.

One of Git’s great features is a bidirectional bridge to Subversion called git svn. This tool allows you to use Git as a valid client to a Subversion server, so you can use all the local features of Git and then push to a Subversion server as if you were using Subversion locally. This means you can do local branching and merging, use the staging area, use rebasing and cherry-picking, and so on, while your collaborators continue to work in their dark and ancient ways. It’s a good way to sneak Git into the corporate environment and help your fellow developers become more efficient while you lobby to get the infrastructure changed to support Git fully. The Subversion bridge is the gateway drug to the DVCS world.
